Great colour and in overall reasonable restored condition. Cornice, locks, latches and cotton pleating later additions. Latch to central cupboard door of lower section is loose and would benefit from attention. Surface apparently original with areas of re-touching, especially around areas with old age splits and small chips such as the sides of the lower section. With two keys and and a small piece of timber which needs re-attaching. Generally with minor old marks, chips and scratches consistent with age. Works well as a bookcase but equally at home as a kitchen cupboard.
